Given their position as joint league leaders with Patidar, two games in hand and a healthier net run rate, Tornado can mathematically clinch the title this weekend should they win against SKLPS.
Tornado come into this game on the back of a 164 run win against Kings College Budo CC. The win put them one step closer clinching the title, but most importantly, they sealed promotion into division one for the 2019 season.
Tornado has played well all season long and SKLPS know that they will have to be at their best to challenge the boys in maroon. Brian Adriko and Cosmas Kyewuta have carried their with brilliant performances and justly so that they remained in contention despite being outside favourites to getting promoted or let alone, winning it all together.
SKLPS has played 12 games and have accumulated 47 points and equally have 2 games left in the season. Even if they were to get all maximum points from both games, they would probably fall short by net run rate as both Tornado and Patidar have greater run rates.
As it stands, Tornado have already qualified for top flight but need to lock down and clinch the title with a win over the weekend. Meghji kara and Yogesh Rabadiya will lock horns with the Cosmas Kyewuta and Trevor Bukenya in a fierce battle for supremacy. Tornado Cricket club however have the upper hand with a lot more roguish batting man power than their counterparts.
Brian Adriko, the Tornado cricket club captain was not remiss when he said;
"we would have loved to face them from our Home ground Budo Cricket club aka LORDS but I guess we have to face them from where the fixture put us."
